NYC mayor disapproves of probe of mosque financing (WaPo)

Weasel Zippers translates: “A terrible precedent”

(Translation: I mean it’s not like the developer is a drunk and disorderly tax deadbeat or the imam is a slumlord with a history of questionable tax subsidies or anything.  Besides, I don’t want anyone looking into my company’s business dealings in the middle east. That might upset my own gravy train.)

Bloomberg is using this issue to increase his standing in the Arab world. He has opened a office in Dubai which is now the center of his middle east Bloomberg network.

Go figure, a politician stepping on the souls of the murdered innocents by using his office for financial gain.

Bloomberg  has lost both his mind and his soul.

Bloomberg’s  Max Linnington:

“Particularly since the meltdown of the western capitalist system, there has been an increasingly large focus on the virtues of Islamic finance. Today, there is no one single provider of information that caters to the Islamic finance market. So by Bloomberg being here, we are in the process of building out an Islamic finance product. We are very confident that we can build a product that meets the needs of the market right now.”  (Emerging Corruption)

How To Run Drug Money: Be A (Large) Bank

No big U.S. bank — Wells Fargo included — has ever been indicted for violating the Bank Secrecy Act or any other federal law. Instead, the Justice Department settles criminal charges by using deferred-prosecution agreements, in which a bank pays a fine and promises not to break the law again.Drug Money>>>

Of course, they’re still jihadis and Islamic supremacists. But everyone is just fine with that. “U.N. to remove Taliban from blacklist: Karzai,” from Reuters, June 22 (thanks to JW):

KABUL (Reuters) – The United Nations has agreed to remove Taliban members who renounce ties to al Qaeda from a U.N. blacklist on a “gradual” basis, Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s office said on Tuesday.

Afghanistan haulage contract helping to fund Taliban, says US report/ Private haulage companies that carry vital supplies to American soldiers in Afghanistan have helped to fund the Taliban and fuel “a vast protection racket

Senior diplomats from the 15-nation U.N. Security Council were in the Afghan capital on Tuesday, following a call for a review of the names of Taliban figures on its sanction list at a peace conference in Kabul earlier this month.

“The president asked the U.N. delegates to remove Taliban members from their blacklist and the delegates agreed to do so gradually and provided the members had no links to al Qaeda or other terrorist groups,” Karzai’s palace said in a statement….

A statement summarizing the June 2-4 meeting of 1,600 tribal and religious leaders in Kabul urged the Afghan government and foreign powers to “take serious action in getting the names of those in opposition removed from the consolidated blacklist.”

UN Calls Censorship a “Human Right”

Yuman Rites for Muslims. No yuman rites for kafirs. The corrupt swine at the UN take infamy to new hights…..

by Tom McGregor/Dallas blog/Hat tip Pamela

The United Nations believes that the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has a “human right” to impose censorship on the media to “promote (Muslim) religious tolerance.” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will even hand over funds for the OIC to ensure that strict censorship on the media will be enforced when reporters shed a negative light on radical Islamic militants that include, Osama bin-Laden, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, al-Shabaab (Somalia) and Abu Shayaff (the Philippines).

According to Fox News, “concerns about censorship were raised after the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which has tremendous sway in the United Nations, successfully pushed through a resolution that creates a watchdog to monitor how religion is portrayed in the media.”

The OIC claims it will enforce religious tolerance by ensuring that the (Muslim) religion is not mocked. An incident occurred when Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed instigated Islamic riots. Yet, the United States and the European Union members on the council voted against the resolution, worrying that it will censor the press and assault freedom of expression.

As reported by Fox, “the resolution now opens the way for the Human Rights Council to select a special investigation on religious freedom to “work closely with mass media organizations to ensure that they create and promote an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity.”

The UN loves to use irony whe implementing new policies. Mr. Ban appointed a so-called “Human Rights Council,” to be the media watchdog to impose censorship. Meanwhile, the UN hires and appoints investigators to seek and punish whistle-blowers and aid in cover-ups of corruption by initiating “sham” investigation inquiries. The UN also hosts “Transparency Summits,” even though Mr. Ban is notorious for hiding internal UN documents from public scrutiny.

Betraying our Israeli allies for cheap spin

Greg Sheridan agrees that Kevin Rudd’s decision to throw out an Israeli diplomat smacks of the cheapest and nasiest kind of spin:

This is a government obsessed with the management of the daily media cycle… But it is very low-grade behaviour to ruin a key relationship such as that with Israel for domestic political advantage.

Sheridan doesn’t mention another factor I think is crucial to understanding this wild and damaging overreaction – Rudd’s desperate desire to woo Muslim nations in his campaign for a UN Security Council seat. About which, this latest news of Rudd-bestowed but taxpayer-funded junkets:

This week, for example, (Foreign Affairs Minister Stephen Smith) was allowed to host the opening of the Botswana High Commission. In Canberra. On Africa Day. You might think nobody would turn up for that, but you’d be wrong. The Australian government flew journalists in from South Africa, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zimbabwe for the event (curiously, not from Botswana). Such was the enthusiasm of Smith’s department for this event, they called it “Batswana” in the media release. We suppose he corrected this in the speech, which basically was aimed at getting Australia a seat on the UN Security Council but dressed up as concern for Africans.

KRudd steals your cash to advertise he’s a liar

Barrie Cassidy holds a liar to account for deciding to spend $38 million on taxpayer-funded ads arguing for his super profits tax:

In opposition, in an interview with Kerry O’Brien (video here), Kevin Rudd promised he would ban all publicly funded advertising within three months of an election – “unless explicitly agreed between the leader of the government and the leader of the opposition.

Tom Ormonde is astonished that more Australians don’t protest at the Rudd Government’s earlier taxpayer-funded campaign ads:

For those of you who haven’t seen the first ad (and that in itself would take some doing), it is a slick little production promoting the government’s revamp of the health system. The ad is interesting for all the wrong reasons – first, for the almost complete absence of information that the public actually needs to know and, second, for the thinly disguised party-political messages in the voice-over.

How can you sleep when the beds are burning?

It seems that Kevin Rudd’s free pink batts – meant to cut emissions – have started yet another fire:

A FIRE fought single-handedly by an 80-year-old woman in Ormond this morning was caused by faulty insulation.

Islamic enmity for Jews is not a Western import

But with large numbers of Mohammedans invading the dar al harb, to settle behind what they perceive to be behind enemy lines,  life for the few  remaining Jews in the West becomes increasingly difficult. Because Mohammedans suck the Jew-hatred in with the mothers milk:

THE RABBI OF MALMÖ SWEDEN: ONE HEARS HEIL HITLER AND ‘F’ING JEW ALL THE TIME NOW…….

Forget about the mythical unicorn of “Islamophobia”, with more Muslims wanting to pour into Europe than ever before, the Organization of the Islamic Conference’s habitual “cry of wolf”, is falling on deaf ears. Jewish communities are being pressured in every quarter of Europe, save Finland, with Jews heading for greener pastures elsewhere as politicians choose to be more attentive their larger Muslim constituency, at the expense of their smaller Jewish communities. That’s the reality of it. KGS Tundra Tabloids

From the Sweden Israel and the Jews blog: Rabbi Shneur Kesselman Speaks Out About Underreported Hate Crime in Malmö

Thanks to Jihad Watch:

“Far from being a by-product of Western anti-Semitism or the creation of Israel, animosity toward the Jews has a firm doctrinal base tracing back to Islam’s most authoritative texts”

In “Islam’s history of anti-Semitism” in the Washington Times, Raymond Ibrahim, editor of the superb Al-Qaeda Reader, reviews the also superb Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism by Andrew Bostom.

Historical documents make clear that, from day one, Jews and Christians have been systematically treated as second-class citizens, “dhimmis,” in the regions conquered by Islam. Thus even if there were some sort of Andalusian “golden age” — as academics are fond of reminiscing and insisting — that’s exactly all it was, an “age,” an “aberration.”

How else to explain the many documents, across the centuries and from all around the Islamic world, that demonstrate the substandard treatment and contempt Jews were made to live with, centuries before the Arab-Israeli conflict? The book debunks the popular thesis that Islamic enmity for Jews is a Western import.

The two main factors behind Western anti-Semitism — “Christian” hostility and racial theories — can have no influence on the Arab-Islamic world, which does not identify with Christianity. Nor can it, in any form of racial hierarchy, look down on its fellow Semites as inferior. If Nazis made Jews wear special insignias identifying them, so did some Muslims — 1,200 years earlier.

What, then, is the primary impetus behind Islam’s antipathy for Jews? This is where Dr. Bostom’s theological documents are key. We come to discover that, far from being a by-product of Western anti-Semitism or the creation of Israel, animosity toward the Jews has a firm doctrinal base tracing back to Islam’s most authoritative texts.

Egyptian TV: The Jews are Behind All Misery, Hardship, Usury, Whorehouses and Corruption…

Weasel Zippers

The Jews are behind the misery, the hardship, the usury, the whorehouses, and any form of corruption that is spread in the land.

Some people think that the enmity between Islam and Judaism began with the emigration of the Prophet Muhammad to Al-Madina. This is not true. The black history of the Jews proves that they are against any reform effort in the world. That’s what the history of the Jews proves, and the Battle of Al-Ahzab fits the pattern.

The history of the Jews shows that they are against any reform movement in the world. Any reformer, Muslim or not, will be attacked by the Jews. The Jews are like that. They thrive only on civil strife, on the selling of arms, on usury, on whorehouses, and so on.

Rest here>>>

Koranic verse after verse, hadith after hadith, castigate, condemn and curse the Jews; they are called “corrupters,” “exploiters,” “distorters,” “prophet-killers,” and, most infamously, “pigs and monkeys.” Such slanderous words are contained in the Koran (the eternal words of Allah) and the Hadith (the words of Islam’s prophet). Thus, Muslim hostility for Jews clearly has little to do with circumstance or politics….

Newsflash:

  • US anti-Semitism envoy slams UN ‘double standards’ on Israel
  • US Senate candidate Tom Campbell accused of voting against Jewish state, accepting funds from Islamic Jihad leader/Carly Fiorina and Chuck DeVore have claimed Campbell  opposes Israel because of the way he has voted while in office and because of the donations he has accepted from Sami al-Arian, a prominent leader of the PalestinianIslamic Jihad.

hamas310305* Well, I guess if we give them what they want they will really like us, what say you?

We know that Assistant US attorneys are not going forward with prosecutions because it is “politically problematic.” And now agents and attorneys aware of this decision believe it obligates them to violate US law by forcing them to work with a front group for a designated terrorist group (Hamas). It is worth reminding you all that the Hamas Covenant states Hamas is a Muslim Brotherhood entity, and that Hamas is a designated terrorist organization by the US government.

US Ready To Drop The 3 Preconditions For Talking With Hamas

Atlas Shrugs:  Hamas gets 300 million for Jihad …

*  Daled Amos: It seems that appeasing minds think alike.

The EU apparently feels that it is no longer necessary to hold Hamas to the 3 preconditions that have been used as the litmus test for deciding on whether to open dialog with the terrorist group Hamas.

With millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet, President Barack Obama is giving $300 million in “aid” to Gaza.

The aid is part of a larger $900 million that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised to the Pali Arabs when she jetted through the Mid East recently.

Much of the money is said to be going directly to the “Palestinian Authority”, which controls the West Bank; however, at least $300 million will go directly to Hamas-controlled Gaza. 

Hamas has been classified as a terrorist organization by the United States government.

Andrew Bolt:

Fitzgibbon quits

 Fitzgibbon’s bizarre links to a Chinese businesswoman who sponsored him, rented a house to him and introduced him to 60 Chinese generals was a more serious disqualification, but I guess this was just the last straw on a donkey’s haystack. The issue:

DEFENCE Minister Joel Fitzgibbon is under renewed pressure after revelations that an army general was instructed to attend meetings with the minister’s brother at which defence health contracting was discussed

Update: Joel Fitzgibbon, forced to quit yesterday as Defence Minister, doesn’t like treason:

I have at least two or three Judas’ in my midst, and they have the drip [sic] on me,” he said. “Sadly, I’m not able to rule out my own ministerial office.”

Poor documentation of how migrant support services were awarded extra money after last year’s budget led the audit office to recommend more transparent decision-making.
